Mai Atafo’s final bow featured a sweet moment with his daughter
After presenting an astounding showcase complete with a violinist playing live as models walked the runway in covetable utilitarian looks from the Urban Jungle collection, Mai Atafo came on stage for his final bow and guess who hopped up on stage right into his arms? His adorable daughter! – Too sweet for words.
A model walked the runway with her baby!
For Studio 189‘s diverse show, one of the models looked exceptionally phenomenal as she walked, danced and twirled on the runway in a “Studio 189” printed tee and a pleated A-line skirt —oh, and did we mention she was carrying her cute baby throughout the whole thing? It was very inspirational!
